Frosty Cranberry Limeade Floats

As the school year approaches, my kids are hoarding playdates like they’re going out of style. Every day there are hungry kids trapsing in and out of my house, and I’m always looking for something quick to feed them. Since it’s like 400 degrees here with 300% humidity, this frosty float was a hit with ALL age groups. Including the mama age group. (A few of us were wondering how this would taste with my homemade pineapple vodka? I can confirm…it’s amazing.)

But for the G-rated crowd, these were a hit. Drink up, kiddos!

Frosty Cranberry Limeade Floats

Frosty Cranberry Limeade Floats


2 cups limeade

4 scoops vanilla ice cream

4 8.4oz. cans Ocean Spray Sparkling Cranberry (in the juice aisle)


In a tall drinking glass, pour 1/2 cup of limeade. Top with a scoop of ice cream and slowly pour the sparkling cranberry into the glass (if you go really slowly it will form a pretty colored layer in the glass, but sometimes I'm too impatient -- like in the one pictured.) Repeat for other glasses.

Makes 4 large drinks.
